This week we begin our van life road trip through a country we have been both excited and nervous to visit -- SPAIN! Our love for the Spanish language, the amazing culture & history and Eamon's zest for kiteboarding have all made Spain a top priority on our European adventures. However, many vanlifers have shared their break-in stories with us and it's left us a little on edge to leave our tiny house on wheels anywhere unsupervised to explore the cities/towns. But, as we always say it's important to experience everything for yourself so we jump into our Spanish adventures head first ❤️.
Join us as we spend a day driving from Lisbon, Portugal to Madrid, Spain and stop to spend some time exploring the capital city. As always, we do our best to show you what it's really like to live in a van full time with your significant other and hope to inspire you to plan your very own road trip (whether it's a quick drive from your home or a long, epic adventure somewhere else in the world).

  • Hola amigos!! We're back to attempting (and butchering 😂) the Spanish language! Excited to explore Spain with all of you. Our rough route currently takes us up to the Pyrenees, down to Barcelona, out to Mallorca and back to finish in Tarifa for kiteboarding. If you have any must sees along that path PLEASE let us know ❤️. As always, a huge thank you to each and every one of you who chooses to spend a little bit of your weekend with us. Lots of love x

    • Hello guys!!! Great videos ;D If you want to visit Sierra de Segura in Jaén just tell me. Maybe you can visit later Granada... amazing place that you have maybe heard... And after that free way to Tarifa and Cádiz with those amazing beaches for wakeboarding. Cheers Eamon & Bec!!!

  • I adore how friendly you are to people, that to me is equally inspiring as you eco-friendliness! I feel like most people nowadays just "mind their own business" and prefer as littlle human interaction as possible, so it's great to see that you can be making friends everywhere you go and speaking the same language is not ever necessary. Love you guys!

They LOOK like what we call fava beans here in the US. I can't find any comments about it - still looking. Anyone?

  • I love you guys and your channel, but a couple of things you said in this particular video really confused/irritated me! I live in the UK and June, July & August had some of the hottest days on record in the whole of Europe ( perhaps in Canada 100.6F is considered...cold??!, AND, for the record, we have some of the most incredible fruits here (raspberries, plums, blackberries, apricots) (You made it sound like the UK is some backward country where nobody eats fruit 😂) So your comments about the UK being cold & having no fruit were BIZARRE to say the least!! Also, Europe is very much educated about waste disposal, it’s just some people are LAZY! When I lived in NYC & LA they had just as much of a problem with waste as any other city/country!!! Making sweeping statements about an entire continent and their ‘education’ is a little....naive to say the least & makes YOU sound somewhat uneducated if I’m being completely honest ! Phew. I just needed to get all of that off my chest! Thanks! 😊

    • Hi Fiona, sorry to have triggered you in this episode. To clarify our luck in the UK + Ireland this summer was that everytime we left a place and visited a new one a strange cold front would come through so most of our summer weather there was 15-19 degrees Celsius which is certainly on the cooler end for summer weather. And we totally agree with you... the produce in the UK was AMAZING!! We simply could not stop talking about how much we loved it. When I said we hasn't been eating much fruit it was because we hadn't been CRAVING big bowls of it like we do in hot, hot weather.
